This pattern is available as an exclusive preview pattern when you sign up for my digital workshop, Colorplay the Westknits Way: Stripes & Slip Stitches. Sign up for my workshop here!
Gather a colorful array of fingering weight yarns to knit the smooth color pop stripes. Two skeins of the main color in garter stitch frame the contrasting colors in stockinette stitch. The large shawl shape is composed of three sections for a seamless modular construction. Short rows elongate the shape and I-cord frames the edges.
You can use as many colors as you like to paint the stripes of this easy to knit shawl.
